    "Self, at what point do I stop assuming the guy stepping on my FT8 QSO is a newbie who is unfamiliar with digital modes, and start assuming the guy is just an inconsiderate jerk?".

    Be careful. I posted something like that about JT65/9 a year or two ago. I thought vigilanti hams from all over were going to come get me and burn me at a stake in the middle of my radial field.:eek::D

    A very pertinent question indeed. I'm still, barely, giving them the benefit of the doubt. But soon, instead of getting upset, I'll just start ignoring calls, not returning, changing frequencies, or staying on frequency if I was there before, deleting the QSO from the log, etc.

    It's a brave new digital world. :D

    Does FT8 sound like a noisy wallwart with a square wave regulator in it?

    Clearly new modes need the agility to accommodate QRM and not just QRN otherwise the digital mode is just another step of "interesting" modes.
